If you guys have any experience with these amps it would be great if you could critize or comment. also, if theres other amps in the same price range($1000) it would really help. thanks guys.

The JCM is good, but look for a Mark IV or even a Carvin V3 (maybe?)...but definitely a the JCM or a Mark IV.

I'd suggest MAYBE a guitar with humbuckers, not a huge deal, but ti might help. I think the JCM 800 sounds awesome.

I'd go with the Vintage Modern if you want to pick one of these 3, otherwise I'd take a look at at Mesa Boogie Stiletto or Mark II,III or IV.

if you get a JCM800 I cannot recommend highly enough that you get some NOS preamp tubes. I found some NOS Mullards made in Great Britain for mine and you can't imagine the difference. Also a Mesa/Boogie DC-5 Dual Caliber can do a pretty decent JCM800 tone and get a little nastier until I OD the Marshall. If you need 100 watts look at the DC-10 instead. Used their pretty reasonably priced.

Don't go for VM, JCM800 rapes it, the traynor is a valid choice too.

have you turned it up and tweaked it long enough, the VM ?
